Bugatti was founded by Ettore Bugatti over a hundred years ago in 1909 in a place called Molsheim, France. Since then, the brand has developed a reputation for building some of the most exclusive and fast cars ever made. Still, the company has found themselves in financial stress during its storied history and has been passed through a multitude of owners.

A pristine example of a numbers matching 1954 Convertible Corvette. This car is from a large private collection of impeccable Corvettes. Fitted with a Blue Flame 6 – cylinder, Dual exhaust, Power glide transmission, and it’s original Sportsman Red exterior with Red interior which only 4% of the total production of 3640 Corvettes were in 1954, this is less than 150 cars in this Sportsman Red color. This car is for the person looking for a rare piece of unique history. It has been a consistent award winner wherever shown.
The highlight of the Auburn 12 was undoubtedly its engine which produced 160 bhp and enough torque to move even the heaviest bodies with ease. This was attached to a free-wheeling differential that disengaged the engine when the throttle was released. Furthermore the 12 was also equipped with an overdrive ‘Dual-Ratio’ axle gear that allowed for high top speeds and reduced fuel consumption.
Bright Blue Metallic with Gray Coves, Black Interior and New White Soft Top. 350 V-8 with Automatic Transmission. Features include Original Wonderbar Radio, Courtesy Light, and Polished Americans with BFG Radials. We purchased this one out of a collection in New Mexico and judging by how clean the frame, floors and rear cross member is, it’s been out west all it’s life. It runs and drives fantastic, and if you don’t care for wide whites and hubcaps on these cars, this car absolutely has the only other look that matters. The old American Mags have that period-correct hot rod driver appeal and a little bit of rake is the cherry on top.
